What A Match! TPL Win by 3 Runs!

BY TAYYAB BALAGAMWALA

A very exciting encounter took place between TPL Insurance and Adamjee General Insurance at Al Mansoora ground. TPL batted first and Kashif Rajput with 38 and Ali Haider with 22 got them off to a good start. The subsequent batsmen, Qaiser, Kamran, and Jawwad however failed to get decent scores but Sharib with a fighting 18 and Ather with a valuable 33 ensured that TPL Insurance reached 154 for the loss of 8 wickets in 20 overs. For Adamjee  General, Jehanzeb starred in his spell, picking up 3 wickets, Inaam took 2 wickets while Zafar, Imran and Rehan picked up a wicket each.

In reply, Adamjee Insurance lost Shoaib early for 4 runs.  Abdul Rehman with 25 and Jehanzeb with 55 got a good partnership going but then Rehan, Mansoor, Imran and Usman fell early. Dilip with 20 tried to bring them close but Adamjee Insurance fell short in the end by 3 runs and lost 9 wickets. Excellent defense by TPL Insurance bowlers as they restricted the Adamjee batsmen and could not let them cross the line. Ather and Jawwad did maximum damage in their spells picking up 3 wickets each while Kashif and Jahanzaib got a wicket each.

TPL Insurance won by 3 wickets.
